A variety of distinguished and notable names have emerged from the beautiful and historical Italian region of Tuscany, including the surname Burdis. The surname Burdis came from the medieval personal name "Bardo," a short form of names such as "Lombardo" or "Bernardo;" the Bardi form is a patronymic or plural form of Bardo.

Burdis Early Origins



The surname Burdis was first found in Florence (Italian: Firenze), where the main branch of the family originates. The earliest records of the family date back to 1112, when Pagano di Bardo and his family were the owners of a castle in Rubella. Other records include Bartolo Bardi, a Florentine priest in 1310; and Bartolomeo Bardi, a nobleman of a banking family, in Florence in 1320. Contessina de Bardi (c.1390-1472,) was heir of the Florentine banking family and married Cosimo de Medici in 1414.

Burdis Spelling Variations



Italian surnames have a surprising number of forms in comparison with other European surnames because they reflect the regional variations and the many dialects of the Italian language, each of which has its distinctive features. For example, in Northern Italy the most standard Italian surname suffix is "I", whereas in Southern Italy the most typical surname suffix is "O". Sardinian is very different from other forms of Italian and in fact, it is considered to be its own distinct language. Additionally, spelling changes frequently occurred because medieval scribes, church officials, and the bearers of names, spelled names as they sounded rather than according to any specific spelling rules. As a consequence of the major changes in the Italian language and in the local spellings of Italian surnames that occurred over the course of history, there are numerous variations for the surname Burdis. These spelling variations include Bardi, Bardo, Bardelli, Bardella, Bardellini, Bardelloni, Bardetti, Bardetta, Bardini, Bardino, Bardola, Barducci, Bardotti, Bardoni, Bardone, Bardacci, Barduzzi, Bardani and many more.
